Ed Emshwiller

I just finished reading a great new biography of artist and film-maker Ed Emshwiller.

The book is EMSHWILLER: INFINITY X TWO.

I'll have more to say about the book in my ASIMOV'S review column. But let me just state here that author Luis Ortiz has done a superb job. You need this book if you're at all interested in the history of SF illustration or avant-garde film-making or the fiction of Carol Emshwiller, Ed's partner and spouse.

And here's a little online lagniappe that the book, however marvelous, doesn't provide.

Two of Emsh's videos are available for viewing on YouTube.

One of the first professional computer-rendered animations ever made, 1979's SUNSTONE:

And from 1962, THANATOPSIS.
